Have you ever thought about turning your blog into a mobile app, but didn’t know where to start? Of course, we’ve all had this problem and I’ve even thought about creating apps for my blogs as well. For the average blogger, the concept of turning their blog into an app seems like it would be a huge headache in dealing with the massive costs and programming issues. Fortunately there are services out there that make the process much easier.
With all of that said, I would like to introduce you to Shoutem.com, which is a web site that specializes in creating mobile applications for blogs, web sites, brands, events and pretty much anything else you can think of. If you wanted to create a custom mobile application for your blog, you always have the option to find a programmer on oDesk and eLance, but the task of finding a quality designer and one that doesn’t cost you an arm and leg is a mission in itself. With Shoutem you can create a mobile app based on your blog content without the need to hire a designer or programmer for a fraction of the cost. You can build and customize an app to match the design of your current blog, while also focusing on key features and content from your site.
